The repair wizards at iFixit have gotten hold of Google’s Nexus 7 tablet and have found that it absolutely bludgeons Amazon’s rival Kindle Fire tablet in terms of battery performance. According to iFixit, Google’s new tablet has “a 4326 mAh, 16 Wh battery that can last 9:49 hours” or more than two hours longer than the Kindle Fire, which “has a 4400 mAh, 16.28 Wh battery ” that “only lasts 7:42 hours.” The results for the Nexus 7’s battery performance were more mixed when pitted against Apple’s newest iPad models as iFixit says that the new iPad batteries last “9:52 hours for HSPA and 9:37 hours for LTE.” Read the full story at Boy Genius Report.
